Your lucky i did'nt go with one of my first designs { hey did'nt i see that on the Enterprize and if this is a 6 cylinder why does it have only 5 ports?} The center port is a siamese port, opened and closed electronically timed to the cam.

And I stay with my opinion that things displayed here remind me of barbecue pits. And I don't care if it is a RUF barbecue pit either. I guarantee you the RUF goes fast for another reason, the BBQ ain't it <=== joking smilie!!!

Cool clean air reminds of a post by Pelican member tbitz. He mounted a thermistor inside his CIS intake, and I recall the intake temps were significantly higher than ambient. When a elbow was fastened to the intake 'horn' to pull air from the decklid grill (instead of engine bay), intake temps dropped to almost ambient. Any airbox design should keep that in mind, provided you can keep water from being ingested, and the gains would be easily documented.

I still need someone with a very nicely detailed and clean engine for a photo shoot for catalog and web publication with my airbox. You need to be local to So. Cal. . This will only take a few hours and you will get to keep the airbox for your trouble and i might even throw a cupholder into the gift bag.This will need to take place after xmas. Let me know at jerryjmproduct@aol.com

Opening not understood

I have an 80 CIS system. The air filter box has an opening on the right side (pass) that has no hose on it. Can anyone tell me what this opening is? Just bought the car.
Incidentally, the cover looks great in spite of it efficiency or lack thereof.
How does one attach a pic to reply? Is it Jpeg? Charlie

Shipibo:

Pictures?

Sure sounds like it may be the stock air box!

Here is a pic of the model before it went to the mold maker.

Interesting...looks like the egg tray from a refrigerator. The end bumps need to contribute to the vent plenum too?

The inside is completely hollow on the final part so the air flowwill cover the entire filter. Egg crate--- i should have thought of that, it would have saved me hours of work.

Do you mean the hole in the pic below?


I have this too but without the cap shown in the picture (borrowed pic from earlier thread). Dunno what it's for

Jerry ,
You sure you don't want a 'well used look' for the photos to be shot in Sunny Scotland!

I already have a well used look in sunny Southern California as pictured in the photo in my previous post. These catalog people are just so picky, they want a photo of an engine that looks like a centerfold model- all airbrushed with no blemishes- you know the kind, the ones that don't exist. Lucky for me, i have found a car like that for the photos and he lives just a few miles from me . But you can send those airline tickets to Scotland to me anyway , i'm sure i will find a use for them.

I think that hole with the cap in it was for the flame arrestor. My 77S had a hose that ran from the oil fill pipe to that location. At one time I ran carbs and re-routed the vapor hose to a small filter. When I went back to CIS, I kept the filter and capped the hole.

Shipibo,

the hose that *Might* be missing could be the oil tank breather hose.

I think...

Exactly = Oil tank breather hose. Mine now vents to the outside world via a small K&N filter with the hole in the airbox plugged.

That small hole in the air filter housing under the filter is normally plugged per PET. At least on an SC, nothing goes to it. The oil tank breather/vent normally goes into the boot after the air sensor plate.

I have 4 photo programs on my computer, arcsoft, adobe, ms and hp . why is it none of them has a simple feature to put arrows on a photograph. I can draw circles, squares, polygons and triangeles but a simple arrow-no. Why is that.
This was in referance to the pic above with the painted arrow and many others like it.
